On one hand, we read headlines like ‘Girls win the top positions’, ‘Girls make it big again’ in newspapers every day and on the other hand we see many girls whose dreams perish in the face of circumstances. Facing many challenges even today, hindering their pace of progress, women are living and fighting every day.

Gender equality is not just a word or a slogan but also a reflection of the state of society. Women/girls are trying hard to make a difference but society and the community are making negligible efforts towards gender equality.

When women/girls step out of the house for their growth and empowerment, they suffer various forms of violence and harassment in cities, workplaces, public transport, and public places. Torture, sarcasm, staring, stalking, sexual assault, and sexual harassment of girls and women in cities have become an everyday occurrence. Even if something does not happen on such a large scale, the workplace and public places do not give them a favourable environment of growth.
The fear and insecurity of increasing violence in the cities continuously affects the lives of girls and women, thereby inhibiting their development and impacting their entire lives.

Men and women are like two wheels of the society who lead the society towards progress. In such a situation, it is the responsibility of the society, especially the youth, to support and help in the development of a safe and inclusive space for women and girls. Develop cities and public spaces, where girls and women fearlessly indulge in the mainstream of development without fear of violence.

The Department of Women and Child Development, Government of Madhya Pradesh is organizing a discussion on 'Safe City, Workplace, Transport, and Public Places'. The main objective of which is to develop such safe cities and safe public spaces in the state, where the daughters and women of every age, community are free from the danger of sexual harassment and fear of sexual or any kind of violence. A state where she can boldly access basic services like education, health, employment, and as a responsible citizen she can fearlessly contribute to the community and society and enjoy a violence-free life.

The department invites the citizens of the state to give their suggestions/views on the following issues:
1. The positive role of youth in building a safe city for women.
2. Protection of women in public transport.
3. Creating a completely safe environment for women at work.
4. Creating an environment free of sexual violence and other violence for girls and women in all educational institutions.
5. To make public places and tourist places safe for women.

The Department of Women and Child Development, Madhya Pradesh appeals to all the citizens to give their suggestions on the subject of 'Safe City - Workplace, Transport and Public Places'. So that we can together, bring sensitivity and awareness towards the safety of women.

"Let's join hands to build a safe city."

Strict punishments for culprits. General public should know the consequences of harassing or molesting a female. 'Fear' in the minds of people with such mentality is must to avoid such cases.

महिला एवं बालिकाओं की सुरक्षा कि जिमेदरी हम सभी की है हमें उन्हें हर फील्ड में सपोर्ट करना होगा ताकि वो कही भी डरे नहीं,उसे ये ना लगे कि वो अकेली है । हमें आने वाले वक्त में बालिकाओं को बहुत मजबूती से हर क्षेत्र में आगे लाना होगा।उनके साथ कदम से कदम मिलाकर चलना होगा ,उन्हें ये बताना होगा कि आने वाले वक्त की बुनियाद हो तुम,हर एक कार्य तुम कर सकती हो।आत्म निर्भर भारत की नीव हो तुम,पूरी दुनिया आज महिला एवम् बालिकाओं के साथ है।

we see many girls whose dreams are shattered. Girls are special. We all know that they are more sensitive, affectionate, caring, loving and they possess more qualities & strength then boys. The crimes against girls and women is the most heinous acts and this shows that now boys must be trained to do the household work in homes and give respect to the girls and women in their lives. If the girls can do all the work of boys then why boys can't do all the work of girls?

Shiv singh jatav हमें खुद में बदलाव लाना है। खुद को बदलना है। अपने अंदर बैठे शैतान पर नियंत्रण करना है। सरकार अपना कार्य कर रही है। नारी शक्ति को उनके अधिकारों के प्रति जागरूक कर रही है। कड़े कानून बना रही है। इस तरह के घटनाओं पर सरकार जिम्मेदार नही होता। समाज जिम्मेदार हम सब स्वयं जिम्मेदार बनते है। इसलिये खुद पर नियंत्रण और बदलाव बहुत जरूरी है।

when women/girls are driving on road or crossing road , boys/men are following them, staring them badly or overtaking them, so to tackle this kind of behavior traffic police has to be very vigilant and punishment for such kind of behavior should be displayed on boards/hoardings near roads and traffic signals.
Good films and tv serials showing respect and correct behavior towards women and girls should be made more and more to educate public .
